Went back to Cafe Cherrier on Friday and treated two friends to dinner. We sat in the terasse. As usual, the food was great. The house smoked salmon was amazing, the duck confit well done, and tortellini sauce rosé was perfect. It's like being in Paris without having to leave Montreal. Cafe Cherrier, you are always close to my heart!

We sat outside and had a real french meal-steak frites. It is a wonderful place for people watching. The food was good, but the waiter was great.

The food was good...not great. I think it was a bit pricey for what we had. Service was okay, nothing special. I am not sure it would be a place we would return to if we ever visit Montreal again.

A couple friends and I took advantage of a sunny Sunday afternoon and went to Café Cherrier for brunch. I enjoyed my Oeuf Calypso, or Salmon Benedict, because I asked for the hollandaise sauce on the side and therefore didn't have to eat any. Served in a small silver dish was a layer of burnt something covered in a few... More

My boyfriend and I passed by this restaurant 100 times before we decided to try it out last Sunday. We were given a table right away, as well as the menus... and this is where our experience ended. From 12:30 (the moment we sat down) until 12:55, nothing happened. Other clients arrived after us and got to order, while we... More

Was trying to find a great Eggs Benedict. Found a good one, not the best in my life and still quite expensive with a base price of $14.50 for 2. I ordered the Oeufs Florentine and added mushrooms and bacon. The eggs were perfectly poached, the Hollandaise sauce delicious, and the bacon perfect. Only charged $1 for the bacon but... More

I have visited this very French bistro many times when visiting Montreal. My wife and I share meals when eating out and the bar here is perfect but it's busy with locals so get there around 7 and you should be able to get bar seats without to long a wait. We had the special steak of the day and... More

This place has a beautiful outside eating area and was always crowded with locals. We ate lunch here and the croque Monsieur sandwich and salad were excellent.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
